    +1.

    Well, he will, if enough of us carry on supporting him, but the more the merrier, and there may be people who don’t know of him or of the “Tally Ho!” rebuild.

    Agreed, and interesting to hear him mention delegation (in a thoughtful manner) in this week's episode. Bigger plans perhaps?

    And separately, I was very impressed with Luke Powell's project and wish him well too.

    And this week's - an interview with Chris Rees.

    http://sampsonboat.co.uk/33-meeting-...-pilot-cutter/

    I was struck by Chris Rees's reservations about the use of iroko for structural work, because of the risk of hidden rot.

    Many years ago there was a well respected wooden boatbuilder on the East Coast (I won't name him) who built, amongst others, a 42ft ketch - a very big solid boat with a transom stern. His practice -like that of other builders at the time - was to buy in timber in the log and saw it up as required. Some people said - afterwards - that they hadn't liked the look of the big log that the centreline structure was got out of and which went on to provide much of the planking - this builder's practice was to laminate the frames, also from iroko. Anyway, it was a disaster; there was hidden rot in the iroko log and the lovely boat rotted out just a few years after she was launched.

    We used to make draining board ( remember those )from Iroko

    I ended up watching Acorn to Arabella and was very late to bed!

    No source of Dolphinite in the UK?

    I've not come across it. But (in the right circumstances) we can still get white lead paste.

    I see the main man, Leo, has chopped off the end of one finger. A bit ghoulish but he has challenged to viewing public the guess how he did it.

    My joint favourites are: a crush shear injury moving heavy stuff in the yard / getting it trapped in the fork lift.
    Or: A kickback off the table saw. It spits the material out on the oblique and keeping your fingers away is pot luck. I have put back my own riving knife in commemoration of his injury. Will see how long it lasts.

    BTW I have no personal recommendations on how he organizes his own activities, nothing but admiration. Nice to see he is still chirpy and bang at it.

    I was thinking “chisel”, but I am also thinking that he has been getting a bit relaxed about that chainsaw.
